Needle in the Hay Featured Author

January 3, 2017

ANNOUNCEMENT TIME: This month, I've been honoured with the featured author spot on the Needle in the Hay website! 


After entering numerous online competitions, occasionally judging the awards, designing the brief for a new contest, and helping out with the official twitter account, I'm incredibly grateful to have been chosen as Needle in the Hay's Featured Author! 


Editor of the website, Martin Di Biasi interviewed me about myself and my writing for the feature. (I think I only occasionally sound like a wanker, so I'm pretty happy with the result haha!)


Here's a little snippet:


What inspires you to write?


I wrote my first story when I was four years old, I’m pretty sure, and that was inspired by these beautiful pictures of a unicorn. I guess a lot of my inspiration comes from the fantasy world, often from mythical creatures and places. I love maps, and I love ‘worlds’, which I think is why I liked playing Dungeons and Dragons type games so much as a kid. I was pretty obsessed with Diablo II (if anyone knows what that is, big points from me!)


Make sure you check out the full interview HERE at NiTH.


It was a lot of fun, and it made me feel like a real writer, so I hope you find my thoughts on writing, performing and life in the arts at least somewhat enlightening! 


Oh, and stay tuned for some more exciting news...
